Chemical tests on teeth from an ancient burial site containing the 3,550-year-old remains of a teenage boy wearing a unique necklace unearthed near Stonehenge indicate that the person buried there grew up around the Mediterranean Sea. The conclusions come from analysis of different forms of oxygen and strontium in the tooth enamel of the remains. A previous skeleton unearthed near Stonehenge was analyzed and was found to also be a migrant to the area. The "Boy with the Amber Necklace," as...

PTB researchers want to construct the "atomic clock of the future" much more simply and more compactly than the previous elaborate laboratory set-ups You imagine a clock to be different - yet the optical table with its many complicated set-ups really is one. Optical clocks like the strontium clock in the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Braunschweig could be the atomic clocks of the future; some of them though are already ten times more precise and stable than the best primary...

U.S. researchers say they have developed a technique using a silicon crystal as a type of nanoscale vice to squeeze another crystal into a more useful shape. The scientists led by Professor Darrell Schlom of Cornell University and Joseph Woicik of the National Institute of Standards and Technology said their accomplishment might lead to development of a new class of electronic devices that remember their last state even after power is turned off. Computers that could switch on instantly...

A clever materials science technique that uses a silicon crystal as a sort of nanoscale vise to squeeze another crystal into a more useful shape may launch a new class of electronic devices that remember their last state even after power is turned off. Computers that could switch on instantly without the time-consuming process of "booting" an operating system is just one of the possibilities, according to a new paper by a team of researchers spanning four universities, two federal...

The technology of storing electronic information "“ from old cassette tapes to shiny laptop computers "“ has been a major force in the electronics industry for decades.Low-power, high-efficiency electronic memory could be the long-term result of collaborative research led by Cornell materials scientist Darrell Schlom. The research, to be published April 17 in the journal Science (Vol. 324 No. 5925), involves taking a well-known oxide, strontium titanate, and depositing it on...

Crew members Christopher Columbus left behind after his second voyage to the Americas are telling tales of their past, U.S. researchers said. A team from the University of Wisconsin-Madison is examining the teeth from three sets of remains excavated nearly 20 years ago from the site of La Isabela -- the town Columbus founded in the Dominican Republic more than 500 years ago. Researchers said carbon isotope ratios provide evidence of diet at the time a child's adult teeth emerge, oxygen...

The adage that dead men tell no tales has long been disproved by archaeology. Now, however, science is taking interrogation of the dead to new heights. In a study that promises fresh and perhaps personal insight into the earliest European visitors to the New World, a team or researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison is extracting the chemical details of life history from the teeth of crew members Christopher Columbus left on the island of Hispaniola after his second voyage to...

Celestite (SrSO4) is a mineral consisting of strontium sulfate. The mineral is also known as celestine and is named for its occasional delicate blue color. Celestite occurs as crystals, and also in compact massive and fibrous forms. It is mostly found in sedimentary rocks, often associated with the minerals gypsum, anhydrite, and halite. The mineral is found worldwide, usually in small quantities. Pale blue crystal specimens are found in Madagascar.
